CRM


Plenary Meetings of the RCM

Since its creation, the Regional Conference on Migration holds a yearly meeting of Vice-Ministers. During these meetings, governments talk about migration issues in the region and a document called "Joint Communiqué" or "Declaration and Decisions" is produced as a result of this exchange of ideas and experiences. Here you will find these final documents as well as the Conclusions of the RCGM in chronological order.
